Joy the Baker's Kale and Quinoa Cakes Are Sweet Healthy Alternatives

— January 29, 2013 — Lifestyle

The bites incorporate sundried tomatoes, kale, parsley, onions and cheese. The dough is then balled into small scoops that descend with heat, giving way to the small griddle-like formation. She at the same time makes mention of the many steps that are involved, inclusive of chopping, cleaning, sauteing and shaping.
